Warm Balsamic n Bacon Dressing Salad Wrap ~ A SnS Recipe

Hiya lovelies!  I wanted to post this earlier, but I was a bit preoccupied today ;)
I'm a salad fanatic.  I could eat salads for meals everyday, and not because they are healthy, but because I love them.  This is one of my favorite recipes, I actually had it for dinner the other night.  It's easy, and I almost always have all the ingredients on hand.  Here's what you'll need:
Spinach or spring mix, bacon, onion, brown sugar, feta cheese, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, lemon, flour tortillas (I like the spinach ones!).
Cut up 3 strips of bacon into little pieces and start cooking them.
When they are about halfway done, I add about 1-1/2 slices of onion, cut in half.  Cook until done.
While those are cooking, I take about 2 handfuls of spinach and cut it into smaller pieces.  Put in a large bowl.
Remove the pan (temporarily!) from the burner.  Add about 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil, 2-3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar, and about 1-1/2 teaspoons of brown sugar.  The crucial part here is to get the vinegar in without it splattering everywhere.  I pour it directly into the oil, off the burner.  Finally, put about 1/2 teaspoon of each sea salt and freshly ground pepper.  Let it boil for about 2 minutes, or until it thickens slightly.
Pour it over your bowl of spinach.  Add however much feta you'd like; I like an insane amount.  Squeeze a lemon wedge over the top.  Mix well.
Rinse out the pan well and put it on a burner, over medium heat.  Add your tortilla, moving it around.  Heat it on each side for about 30 seconds.
Put your salad in the middle of the tortilla, I use a spoon to do this.
Wrap it into a burrito, and enjoy!  This makes a great easy lunch, or dinner if you're like me :)
Will you make this?  Let me know how it comes out!
